  • Digital Album
    Streaming + Download

    Immediate download of 9-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire. We think you should get the full quality experience for your money, if you so choose!

    We use Bandcamp because it gives us the ability to offer all these formats and because we, the band, make nearly the full price you pay for a download (minus our 2.9% Paypal fee). By purchasing from Bandcamp, it's going direct to the band.

    Typically the digital distributor takes anywhere from 30-50% of the purchase price, while CD distributors average about 40% - so a $10 album will net us from $5-$7 when using other distribution channels, not including other fees (Paypal for the monthly payment transfer, Tunecore fees for submission/maintenance of the release, etc).

    By using Bandcamp we can offer our albums at $5 and still make as much as we do using other distributors, but at a lower cost to you.

Auralei 05:17
morning mist settles gently thirsty earth drinks her down elixer of life open me slowly as shadows fade to dawn snowflakes fall from icy clouds drift like wisps of cotton in a blue eye frozen jewel warm breath awaken auralei it's a new day let us live again thousand current pulsing chaos rhythm burning thru restless mind time the only witness to yearning faithful follower listen with devotion silent melody climb your ladder till you're gazing into infinity auralei it's a new day let us live again

Easy 04:55
from my window i can see an oak with one star like a heart caught in its bones singing so easy to be happy how easy to be happy high above the warm sand lazy clouds roll by angel takes me by the hand thought melts from my mind starlight twinkles to me through cracks in the sky singing so easy to be happy how easy to be happy cool breeze lift me up honey fill my cup sunlight warm my skin open up and let it in so easy to be happy so easy from my window i can see wild canary

Seven 04:35
suckling at the nectar of dreams let this body be a honeytree leaves like dragonfly wings this world is beautiful i’m still listening tell me everything streaks of crimson in a deep blue sky bright as tigers eyes god is a messy child with a funny sense of grace some things are for keeps even memory can’t erase every day i laugh out loud believe in love and here and now

Ella 05:38
nature's child wildly wise awoke and opened ancient joyful eyes danced down from heaven trailing fireworks cross the sky bright soul shine ten thousand fireflies ella lucky child born of love sunlight on water dancing write our names on the wind turning cartwheels on the sand castiing shadows on the sun weaving blankets of light digging secret gardens ella lucky child born of love sunlight on water dancing write our names on the wind in the woods on a winter afternoon see your stained glass heart shining adorned in colors of the western sky seen through bare crossing branches high cathedrals blossoming of stone mountains of granite bloom eternal flowers in stem and petal lotus and fern trace your gypsy footsteps home ella lucky child born of love sunlight on water dancing write our names on the wind to those not yet here to all who have been offer these hands for you to begin again give to her she give back ten times to you may we always be together

if i had only one hour spend it loving you no rewind we take it as it comes each day precious and new here and now spinning and spinning and never slowing down i lose track of time hold on tight we’re old as life young as tomorrow here and now hear the trees their gentle leaves cool morning flows into warm sunshine happy bluebird laughing lullaby wraps its rays around my heart and we paint our own sky there are no goodbyes only these small farewells here and now

about

“Grown-up electro-pop, trip-hop that doesn’t sound like 1993”

– Steve Lawson

The Auralei EP is an 8-song glimpse of future and past, including 3 tracks from the upcoming full-length release Body of Glass, 3 remixes of songs from Gravity, and 2 additional new tracks. Featuring collaborations with fellow RTFM artists Bobby Cochran (Hands Upon Black Earth), Daniel Berkman (Colfax), and Michel Jordan (Mijo / Sensor II), the EP explores new territory for Artemis. "Auralei" and "Ella" are rich with washy guitars, live drums and dreamy production. "Easy" forays into downtempo dub laced with sparkly guitar licks, and the Colfax remix of "Here and Now" is a spacious analog dance mix pulsing with intricate, layered vocals. "Seven" is a darker, syncopated tribal rock piece featuring a call and response between spoken word and Eastern European-style soaring melodies. Artemis drummer Cliff Tune and Sensor II contribute a thumping breaks mix of "Lagoon" graced with alien-pitched vocals. The Klangperle remix of "Hypno" is a beautiful late-night tech/house version of this deep and driving song. Jimmy 2 Sticks (aka Daniel Durrett) glitchy ambient remix of "Subterranean" is a sneak peak at upcoming collaborations between Artemis and this talented newcomer to the RTFM gang.

The cover artwork was created by Second Life art giant AM Radio, using an image from an antique piece of fabric handed down from Artemis' grandmother, layered over his own handpainted tile. Future image and video collaborations are in the works...

about

Artemis San Francisco

Spectral keyboard washes and sinuous dance beats set up a feeling of warm alienation while Artemis’s voice heats things further. Over the thump and shimmer, she croons with detached fervor, the music dissolving in a storm of pixie-dust disco until a rude riot of effects snaps the tether and she vanishes. ... more
